Hamburg G20 prisoners soli-demo in Amsterdam (Germany, Netherlands)

From Amsterdam to Hamburg. On Thursday 31st August a solidarity demo took place in Amsterdam. It was not only against the G20 but also against the recent censorship of Indymedia in Germany. We hope you can spread the news amongst our friends.

A 21-year old person from Amsterdam has been convicted to two year and seven months in prison. He is accused of having thrown two empty beer bottles at the police after hundreds of riot police blocked and attacked the “Welcome to Hell” demonstration on the evening before the G20 summit in Hamburg last July (see here: https://vimeo.com/224524911).

There was no real evidence against the Dutch comrade. The main proof being two police testimonies that described the individual who threw the bottles as a person with dreadlocks. The 21 year old that was convicted on Monday has no dreadlocks. Another 108 people are currently still awaiting trial, including one 33 year old person from Nijmegen.
